Why do some pages open in separate browser windows?
Some Web pages on Lehigh's Web site operate in separate browser Windows. These components are designed to operate faster and independently of each other. In many instances, it's helpful to open multiple window components. (For example, it may be useful to view the campus tour and the interactive map during the same session.)

What is Adobe Acrobat and why do I need it?
Some documents available on the site are released in a special Portable Document Format (PDF) and require Acrobat(R) Reader software. The Acrobat software allows you to download, view, navigate, enlarge and print PDF files across all major computing platforms, while preserving the intended layout of the document. If you don't have the free reader software (or the browser plug-in), you can download versions for most platforms here. Follow the instructions on the Adobe Web site to install the software, then return to the Lehigh Web page that features the PDF document you wish to view.

 Acrobat(R) Reader is a registered trademark of Adobe Systems Incorporated. Legal notices.

About the video formats used on our Web site

Streaming Video Format
Anyone with an Internet connection (even those using dial-up modems) can view this type of video without having to wait for the entire movie to download first. However, the quality of the video and audio fluctuates based on the speed of your available connection to the Internet. Video player software may also need to be installed on your computer prior to viewing streaming video. If you don't have video player software on your computer, click here and follow the link "Get RealPlayer - Free" and follow the installation instructions. Note that "RealPlayer Plus " or "RealPlayer with SuperPass" versions are not free products.

MPEG (Motion Picture Experts Group) video format
Digital video files are often very large in size. MPEG technology enables audio and video files to be compressed to relatively small file sizes. This type of encoded video must be downloaded before it can be played, but often looks and sounds superior when compared to the streaming version. As a result, MPEG video is readily available to be played on a desktop or laptop computer even when a connection to the Internet is not available. (Typically, MPEG video will download and begin to automatically play on systems that have movie player software preinstalled).


Adobe Flash Player
The Adobe Flash Player is required in order to view portions of our Web site correctly. If you don't have Flash player software on your computer, click here and follow the installation instructions.
